Korica coffee beans or ground coffee was born out of a long-term relationship with Carole Zbinden, our coffee producer in Costa Rica, at the El Quizarra farm. Carole is located at an altitude of more than 1,400 meters, on volcanic soil. It is a family farm of more than 57 years on an area of 14 hectares, with the main production of arabica. Korica coffee has a lively character thanks to its washed treatment, aromas of orange and honey that Carole cultivates with passion. What is specialty coffee? Specialty coffee is a top-of-the-range coffee known as “rare”, with unique characteristics in the world. It is cultivated in the highest altitudes of the world, in family plantations whose objective is the superior quality, signed by a manual harvest in order to guarantee the perfection of the grain. The terroir coffees are carefully sourced for the care taken by the producer, a superior manual and selective harvest, full traceability, a cultivation method and a respected and controlled treatment process.   What is the Score?
